Do you hear me? None.

Thanks to Deflategate, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will be without his four-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady through the first four weeks of the 2016-17 season. Jimmy Garoppolo, who impressed in his first day of training camp, will likely lead the Pats until Brady returns for Week 5.

At a press conference Friday morning, a bare-armed Belichick addressed speculation that, in the event Garoppolo shines through a 4-0 or 3-1 start this year, Brady would ride the bench upon his return until needed.

The rosters aren’t even set yet, but ol’ Bill is already in postseason form. Should be a fun first four weeks of the season, beat writers!
